Postponed – The Cabarats Live at OFH
August 16, 2019 @ 10:00 pm - 1:00 am
— POSTPONED —
We are gutted to announce that we have had to postpone this show as there was a double booking which was completely out of our control. So we are no longer playing The Old Firehouse on 10/05 – but instead we will be there on 16/08 with bells on!
The Cabarats return to Exeter for the second time.
Expect original music with ska, Balkan, reggae and Middle-Eastern influences combined with a few quirky well known covers!
The Cabarats bring a new musical experience to the global underground, combining traditional Balkan and Middle Eastern sounds with lively reggae and ska.
Using a collection of intriguing instruments such as accordion, oud, keyboard and brass, the band have dazzled a wide range of audiences from festival crowds to private functions and community events.
After the successful release of their debut album ‘Out of the Bag’, the last year has been an exciting journey for the rats. The band appeared on one of the main stages at Boomtown Fair and gained the attention of BBC Introducing, performing on their stage at Looe Saves the Day.
2018 also saw the band support renowned acts Tankus the Henge and The Undercover Hippy, before they embarked on a tour of France and played some special wedding parties.
Once again The Cabarats set out to share their magic at festivals, venues, parties and even a few street corners. Keep your eyes peeled for a performance near you!
“If you want a band that’ll have you tapping your toes, bobbing your head and bouncing along then it’s The Cabarats you need. With a seamless mix of reggae folk and Balkan ska their lively, unique sound is definitely smile inducing. These talented musicians know how to put on a show and enrapture their audience.”
